Massachusetts Horticultural Society will host a special program on January 24, 2019 at 1 PM that focuses on beloved New Engand artists and their gardens.

Gardens are a space for creative rejuvenation, muse, and inspiration. New England is rich with historical artists, poets and writers, and we are lucky to have not only their work but also the gardens that held a special place in their lives. Enjoy an afternoon of presentations exploring these truly inspired settings.

The three presentations include "Amherst has Gone to Eden” by Michael Mederios, formerly of the Emily Dickinson Museum, "Summers for Celia: Then & Again" by Marie Nickerson, Celia Thaxter's Garden Steward and "A Genius for Gardens: Edith Wharton and The Mount" by Anne Schuyler, The Mount's Director of Visitors Services.

The program will take place in the Parkman Room at Massachusetts Horticultural Society, 900 Washington Street, Wellesley, Massachusetts. For information and Registration go here.
